The Tigers ended the winter at 15-16-3, winning the most games in a season since Princeton went 20-12-2 in 1998-99.

PU Men's Hockey Falls in ECACHL Quarters but Seniors' Legacy of Excellence Will Endure

In its two regular season games with Dartmouth this winter, the Princeton University men's ice hockey team outscored the Big Green 6-3 as it posted a win and a tie in the matchup.

Last Friday in the opening game of a best-of-three ECAC Hockey league quarterfinal series between the two longtime rivals at Thompson Arena in Hanover, N.H., third-seeded Dartmouth surpassed that three-goal output 7:29 into the second period as it jumped to a 4-0 lead over the sixth-seeded Tigers. The Big Green tacked on two more goals as they skated to a 6-2 win over Princeton in the opener.

A night later, things were much tighter as a second-period goal by Tiger sophomore star Lee Jubinville left the game knotted at 1-1 heading into the final 20 minutes of regulation. But the Big Green came through again, scoring two unanswered goals within 90 seconds. Princeton countered with a Mark Magnowksi goal but was unable to break through again as it fell 3-2 to see its season come to an end.

As the 18th-seeded Princeton High boys' ice hockey team got ready to face No. 2 Ridge last Wednesday in the state Public tournament Round of 16 at the Bridgewater Sports Arena, the PHS players were a loose bunch.

"They were joking with each other in the locker room and in the warm-ups right until the start of the game," said PHS head coach Paul Merrow. "It was good to see that they weren't tight."
